Studying to accomplish the greatest goals
We know that it’s important to educate boys in a way that builds upon their strengths when the larger educational discourse seems to focus solely on their challenges. We intentionally adopt instructional methods that are most developmentally appropriate for boys. We challenge the boys to be the best version of themselves in the classroom,, on the playing field, and in the community. In addition to providing an excellent academic foundation, we support boys’ needs for deep relationships and an enduring sense of purpose.
In a time of changing gender and cultural expectations, SPTA teaches competencies that allow boys to adapt to these changes while remaining true to themselves and their values. We are committed to providing our boy-child with the skills and dispositions that will make them into the good men that the world needs today.
We do this in a warm, welcoming community of like-minded people who have chosen to become boy mentors. We follow evidence-based educational practices and ensure our teachers and staff receive ongoing professional development for teaching, coaching, and mentoring young men. Most importantly, we know and love our pupils and believe deeply in our mission to create men of intellect and integrity who aspire to contribute meaningfully to our world.
